General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: CPA v. JD; Is it worth it?
« on: December 28, 2010, 10:51:07 AM »
It depends on if you want to limited to one box or not. CPA is taxes only. Lawyers can do a lot more than just that.

I've seen a lot of CPA's turn around and come to lawschool. The truth is that a JD is cheaper than a CPA. It really is, you just have to get a good enough GPA or LSAT to go for friggin' free. You only need a 160 for a 100% free ride at some lawschools, as low as a 146 can be partial scholarship. People can cry and nash teeth about it being a lower "T" school, but anything that allows passage of the lawbar puts you miles if not galaxies ahead of a plain CPA.

Slim to none. Retake untill you get a 160 and retake a bunch of crazy easy undergrad classes(whatever ones that even stoners take and ace nowdays)
to raise the GPA. Then you should be ok. Nothing wrong with looking at the other hundreds of options either too though.

Law School Applications / Re: Low LSAT score.
« on: December 27, 2010, 09:16:51 PM »
Even schools that accept low lsat scores want at least a 145(sometimes as low as 142 if you are a URM) but below that you'd have to go to a nonaba state or online lawschool. Remember that lsat is only good for 5 years anyways, plus many lawschools let you take the higher of the two scores and the others average them out(with the oldest one gone at the lapse of 5 years from date of taking anyways)

Some people have to take a test once to get a feel for it before taking it again to do better. There is no shame in that. Just retake it and you should be fine. You may want to study first too. The lsac offers free study guides when you sign up to take the test.

Transferring / Transfer to an online law school

People here cry saying their main reasons for "quiting" lawschool was coldrooms, mean profs/students :'(,

so why not transfer to an online one to finish up the degree and have at least something to show for the wasted chunk of your life and debt?

LSAC and LSDAS / Re: A couple LSAC questions. . .

Any schools that have GPA's over 4.0 are just grade inflation. It's a classic scam to claim to have "better" students.

W should equal a neutral impact on GPA. It should be as if you didn't take it at all.

U's tend to be the ones that bite you in the but, those and WX. Normally those are when you just quit showing up or tried to withdrawl too late though.

The white man will always talk smack about a school which has more minorities and women than they do.
It's just racism, so don't expect the rankings to change since Republicans run USNews and they are the biggest racists all. If the votes come in favor of a minority school, they'll just change how they do their rankings. That's how racism works.

So you are probally ok with words like "renigging" "Indian-giver" and
"jimmyrigged"(spin off of "n-word-rigged" with reference to the now infamous jimcrow laws)

Majors have stepped down from public office after public outcry for using it, so factor that in.
Basicly, write those two men with that word and your name and lawschool and see how it spells out.

People lose their mind over "those people" too after all. (and that makes even less real sense dosn't it)

Yes, but why?  simply b/c it "sounds" like the dreaded "n-word?"  Ignorance does not make something right.

I'm pretty sure if you use the word niggardly in from jesse jackson or al sharpton, it'll be the only thing on the news for a month.
